Resting in a cabin
Although it is not compulsory to book a cabin for the crossing from Hirtshals to Bergen, you are depriving yourself of a comfort that the ferry is the only mode of transport to offer. Equipped with bunks, private bathrooms and sometimes even portholes or balconies, the cabins are just like real hotel rooms.
